Introducing the newlywed Mr. + Mrs. Samardzija!!!

It’s crazy that six months have already passed from when I met Katey + Dave for coffee back in April to talk about their wedding, and now they’re married!!! Their wedding day was just perfect and such a reflection of them: fun, inviting, and beautiful. There were so many details about their big day that I just loved, from the fall themed colors, beautiful bouquets, historical church, their grand exit, Serbian dance party at their reception, how Katey’s something blue was her grandmother’s ring, oh I could go on and on!

Get this! The church where their ceremony was held, Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church, is the same church that Katey’s parents, Kay + Terry, got married in! How sweet is that? On top of that… Kay got to help Katey get ready in her wedding dress in the exact same spot that she got ready in hers on her wedding day. It was such a special mother daughter moment!

I absolutely loved that Katey + Dave chose to do a first look because it gave them so many special moments together throughout the beginning of their day! Dave’s face when seeing Katey in her wedding dress for the first time during their first look was just priceless. It was so sweet to see how much they adore each other and that moment captured it all! I just loved the way they kept looking at each other the same way all day!

Katey + Dave’s wedding party was such a fun group! They were all so sweet and had so many spontaneous ideas for photos, such as showing off the killer groomsmen statement socks! I just loved how much Katey + Dave incorporated their family into everything and let’s just talk about the cutest ring bearer and flower girls! You’ll see them quite a bit scrolling through these photos, because I just couldn’t get enough of them! They were so sweet!

Katey + Dave, thank you for the honor of getting to capture these memories that will last a lifetime! I hope you love looking back on them as much as I loved capturing them for you! I’m so excited for you guys to get to start this journey of marriage! It’s the best!!!
